Interesting, I think.

And don't worry--it's almost over...election coverage vs recession/depression coverage...arghh...

I believe Dylan's "Great White Wonder" started it all, along with "The Basement Tapes". Geez, The Basement Tapes should have been number 1 on that list. It's still the greatest example. When that one came out most of the songs on it had never been heard before and Dylan was in seclusion. It's impact cannot be over stated. It was a revelation at that time!
And the Grateful Dead's 5/2/70 Harpur College or Imaginary Ballroom "bootlegs" should have been there since they chose to mention the Dead.

There's so many bootlegs now, since burning ripping is feasible for anyone with a desktop.

In the old days, you had to have an abandoned drive-in theatre within 100 miles and the will to drag either yourself or crateloads of white jacketed LPs with photo-copied covers flapping in the early morning rain.

How did I forget The Basement Tapes?
Honorable mentions in parentheses...

Liver Than You'll Ever Be - Rolling Stones (The 1972 Unreleased Decca Live Album; Unsurpassed Masters; Necrophilia; Black Box; Rock and Roll Circus - b&w pre-release video)
Get Back - The Beatles (numerous LP recording sessions)

The Basement Tapes - Bob Dylan (Ten of Swords; Eat The
Document pre-release video; rehearsals with Grateful Dead)

Enjoy Jimi Hendrix (double LP, great cover art graphics anyway; Live in Stockholm 1967; In The Studio 1967)

Buffalo Springfield - Stampede (Missing Herd)

Beach Boys - (pre-release) Smile

Sex Pistols - Spunk (pre-official release)

The Who - Who's Zoo (Live at Fillmore East 1968)

Monterey Pop (10 discs - the almost complete concert)

What a horrible list. I can't speak for all the artists - but 3/23/87 as the best Dead show - 3/17/68 as the best Hendrix - 12/10/07 as top Zeppelin - Floyd & the Doors also represented by not-so-great shows - and no Dylan at all.....yecchh.
Of course, this could encourage us to come up with our own "top-ten-bootlegs".....

Thanks WT, I'm going to make an effort to score a couple of these. As for the political stuff, don't count on it. Reading between the lines regarding voter fraud, I sense another trip to the Supreme Court for the final tally. (and a more deeply divided country facing a very uncertain economic future)

Nothin' left to do but smile, smile smile.
